I guess I am silly. LOLIf you drive the cars regularly, then no. They don't draw any idle current worth mentioning.
You can effectively power the little 203's from a quality banana jack style Cig/Accessory jack as well. It'd be silly to run dedicated power to the battery through the fire wall for an amp of that class.
Well we'll just call that planning for the next purchase you hide from the War Department!I guess I am silly. LOL
I run a line to my 203. I don’t trust the cig lighter. I think it’s a 8ga power and ground. Good thing it’s good for a bigger amp.
But ya OP you can leave it on.
Well 12awg wire is plenty for that amp. It certainly won't hurt. If you're not up to speed on making your own coax cables. Just use any standard length you can get pre-made between the radio and the Linear! And the same for the antenna. Use whatever is the closest in length to what you need.I think I am going to mount it where I can flip the switch from the under the dash probably use 12 gauge wire amp draws 10amps my next question is what antenna cable should I use with this one setup is in a jeep and only a few inches will be exposed the other in a truck and most of the cable will be under the cab
Well not withstanding general aging due to weather and the elements. Beldin is legit. I use Beldin rg8x mobile. Scored a big roll a ways way back.Feeding the amps with president Bills I am going to turn them down the truck will have 102" stainless whip the Jeep will have a double barrel skip shooter. Not sure idf I should get rg8x, rg58? Also red some of the Chinese cables on amazon are not very good any recommendations on brands. Truck has a Belden mini 8 cable from 2006 still in it so I may reuse it.
You'd be fine with that cable really. Short runs and low power so no need to split hairs really.I was considering this procomm wire RG8X or should I look for belden? the 102" whip is mounted on a truck tool box on the driver side no spring seemed to work very well with the Connex 4400hp. The local shop set the swr for me, I rember him saying it was very good he did not trim anything. I recently bought a MFJ-872 to set it myself.
